Personally I love cauliflower rice and especially cauliflower fried rice, but recently after hearing a friend boldly state that she couldn't eat one more bite of cauliflower anything (she has been Paleo for 2 years), I set out to create another veggie version of her favorite fried rice. Putting our heads together we considered carrots, jicama, celeriac, and squash; but finally decided on cabbage since it’s something that is easy to prepare, affordable, and is a constant in Asian recipes. From there we simply threw together the typical cast of characters and made a delicious side dish. To save time, we just used bagged shredded cabbage but if you want things more rice like you can pulse the cabbage in a food processor.
